No matter what the source is, damage that comes from a surplus of water in your home is not only frustrating, but after a certain extent, it can be detrimental to the health and safety of you and your home.
Once you’ve experienced water damage to your property, it’s important to begin resolving the issue as soon as possible before long-term issues — like mold and structural issues — arise. Here are three things you should do after experiencing water damage:
- Follow safety precautions: If the level of water damage in your home is creating unsafe conditions for you and your loved ones, avoid contact with the water and turn off your electricity and gas supply if possible. Evacuate your home and call the professionals to begin addressing the issue.
- Document: Depending on the severity of your water damage, an essential part of dealing with this situation is documenting the areas impacted and amount of damage incurred. This will help your insurance company in assessing the damage and determining if it is coverable.
- Begin restoration: Whether you’re dealing with a flood or a water leak, this type of damage can be pervasive, lingering, and pesky to resolve. The drying process can be tricky to navigate, and sometimes, even if you think your cleaning efforts are successful, the deterioration caused by water damage can continue.
